Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Susan joined TCV in 2019 as a General Partner, Portfolio Operations, to stand up the advisory and operating organization to drive value across the portfolio. She works with investment teams, CEOs, and senior portfolio leadership on business value creation initiatives and to develop and implement ongoing strategic and operating plans. Susan’s team also collaborates with investment teams in evaluating the management, processes, and market position of prospective investments.
Prior to TCV, Susan held a VP Operations / Chief of Staff position at Vista Equity Partners. In that role, she led key strategic programs across the portfolio, working directly with companies to realize operational excellence and drive value creation. In this capacity, Susan led the execution of Vista’s transformation plan for Forcepoint (formerly Websense). Susan also held various strategic planning and business process improvement roles across Dell, IBM, and DXC Technology (formerly EDS).
Susan appreciates planning and organization professionally, but takes a more adventurous approach to her personal life. She loves to explore new countries and cultures and can periodically be found racing around a speed track (accompanied by a professional driver…safety first!). Susan also enjoys travel and down time with her daughters.
Susan received a B.S. in M.I.S. at Kettering University, where she was sponsored by both NASA and GM. She also received an M.B.A from Oakland University, where she earned Beta Gamma Signa honors.
